18.8 Appendix A: BENEFICIAL OWNERSHIP REQUIREMENTS. GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS – What is this form? – To help the government fight financial crime, Federal regulation requires certain financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information about the beneficial owners of legal entity customers. Legal entities can be abused to disguise involvement in terrorist financing, money laundering, tax evasion, corruption, fraud, and other financial crimes. Requiring the disclosure of key individuals who own or control a legal entity (i.e., the beneficial owners) helps law enforcement investigate and prosecute these crimes.
Who has to complete this form? – This form must be completed by the person opening a new account on behalf of a legal entity with any of the following U.S. financial institutions: (i) a bank or credit union; (ii) a broker or dealer in securities; (iii) a mutual fund; (iv) a futures commission merchant; or (v) an introducing broker in commodities. For the purposes of this form, a legal entity includes a corporation, limited liability company, or other entity that is created by a filing of a public document with a Secretary of State or similar office, a general partnership, and any similar business entity formed in the United States or a foreign country. Legal entity does not include sole proprietorships, unincorporated associations, or natural persons opening accounts on their own behalf.
What information do I have to provide? – This form requires you to provide the name, address, date of birth and Social Security number (or passport number or other similar information, in the case of foreign persons) for the following individuals (i.e., the beneficial owners):
(i) Each individual, if any, who owns, directly or indirectly, 25 percent or more of the equity interests for U.S. legal entities OR 10 percent of more for non-U.S. entities of the legal entity customer (e.g., each natural person that owns 10 percent or more of the shares of a corporation); and (ii) An individual with significant responsibility for managing the legal entity customer (e.g., a Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Chief Operating Officer, Managing Member, General Partner, President, Vice President, or Treasurer). The number of individuals that satisfy this definition of “beneficial owner” may vary. Under section (i), depending on the factual circumstances, up to four individuals (but as few as zero) may need to be identified. Regardless of the number of individuals identified under section (i), you must provide the identifying information of one individual under section (ii). It is possible that in some circumstances the same individual might be identified under both sections (e.g., the President of Acme, Inc. who also holds a 30 percent equity interest). Thus, a completed form will contain the identifying information of at least one individual (under section (ii)), and up to five individuals (i.e., one individual under section (ii) and four 25 percent equity holders under section (i)).

Payment Methods. We only accept payment for your transfer via ACH Pull Direct Debit, or, if you choose to initiate the transfer of funds from Your Bank Account, an ACH Push or domestic Wire Transfer. No other payment methods are accepted, including cash, mailed check, or electronic
1. Payment by ACH Pull Direct Debit
If you choose to pay for your transfer using our ACH Pull direct debit feature, you will need to provide your bank account details, including your bank account number and routing number (each such bank account is deemed “Your Bank Account”).
When you choose to pay for your transfer using our ACH Pull direct debit feature and provide Your Bank Account details, you represent that Your Bank Account payment details are correct, that you are authorized to access and transmit funds from Your Bank Account, that Your Bank Account is in good standing with the account-holding financial institution, and that you have the authority to initiate an electronic funds transfer in the amount at issue to or from Your Bank

If you choose to pay for your transfer using the ACH Push or domestic wire transfer method, then your payment order will remain inactive until we receive your funds (the “Deposit Payment”) to our specified
Deposit Payments must be made to our specified account via ACH Push or domestic wire transfer. If for any reason your Transaction is cancelled or refused, then we will promptly return the deposit to the account from which it originated. In the event that we are unable to return the deposit, then we will promptly contact you using the most current contact information provided to us by you through your Paymentearth registration.
10. Exchange Rates.
The “Transaction Amount” is the amount that you send from Your Bank Account in an ACH Pull Transaction or the Deposit Payment in an ACH Push or wire transfer, minus any applicable fees and prior to any foreign exchange conversion.
Locked-In Exchange Rates. We always specify the exchange rate applicable to your Transaction at the time you submit your requested Transaction, and this exchange rate will be locked-in (the “Locked-In Exchange Rate”) for a period of 24 hours from the time you initiate your payment (the “Specified Period”). We will convert the Transaction Amount at the Locked-In Exchange Rate, provided that your Transaction Amount reaches our specified bank account within the Specified
Unlocked Exchange Rates. If the Transaction Amount reaches our specified bank account after the Specified Period, we will convert your funds at the Unlocked Exchange Rate, as defined below, which means that the exchange rate could be higher or lower than the Locked-In Exchange
We make reasonable efforts to align Unlocked Exchange Rates with the mid-market rate in global currency markets at the time of conversion. PE Global Partners LLC DBA Paymentearth relies on aggregated third-party information, and we do not guarantee that the rates match any particular benchmark source at any given time. We are not liable if the amount received by the Recipient is less than anticipated as a result of changes in the global currency markets.
We calculate our rates using a transparent price model, and an agreed upon spread we disclose to you. This spread represents the cost of the service. The only additional fees you pay us for the Service are the Transaction Fees ($10 per foreign denominated wire, and $30 per U.S. denominated wire) and Administration Fees described in Section 14 of this
Transaction History. You can access the details of all your Transactions and other information relating to your use of the Service by logging into the Service Website (at https://www.paymentearth.com) and you must register an online account to do this.
Refused Transactions. We reserve the right in our sole discretion to refuse any Transaction. Reasons for refusal may include but are not limited to an inability to match your registration information with your bank account details, incorrect Recipient details or an insufficient deposit amount. We generally will attempt to notify of you of any refusal, using the contact information provided as part of your registration, stating (where possible) the reasons for the refusal and whether the problem can be corrected. We will not notify you of a refusal where to do so would be
Cancellation of Transactions. You may cancel your Transaction for a full refund (a) within 30 minutes of authorizing your Transaction or (b) at any time thereafter if the Transaction Amount has not yet been converted in accordance with your
Transaction Fees. We charge a fee on every Transaction. Fees relating to the Transaction are fully visible to you before you accept the Transaction. Further information on our fees are published on the Service website at https://www.paymentearth.com.
Transaction Fees do not include any fees that your bank or the Recipient’s bank may charge. Those fees may be deducted from your deposit (in the case of your bank) or the delivered amount (in the case of Recipient’s bank).
Administration Fee. An Administration Fee may be incurred when your Transaction is refused due to incorrect payment details, regulatory requirements or any other reason. (This fee is in addition to any amount your bank or the Recipient’s bank may assess.) Any Administration Fee will be deducted from your Transaction Amount. Our current Administration Fee for Refused Transactions is 8.00 USD per

If you believe there to be an error in connection with a Transaction or other problem as set out in this Section 15, then you should notify PE Global Partners LLC DBA Paymentearth Support at email@example.com or 1-800-566-0915.
If you think there has been an error or problem with your transfer, you must contact support no later than 180 days of the date we promised to you that the funds would be made available to the Recipient. When you do, please tell us as much of the following information as possible: (1) Your name and address; (2) The error or problem with the transfer, and why you believe it is an error or problem; (3) The name of the person receiving the funds, and if you know it, his or her telephone number or address; (4) The dollar amount of the transfer; and (5) The confirmation code or number of the

For errors made by you or a Recipient, such as making a transfer to an unintended person or transferring an unintended amount;

Our clients are thrilled!
Paymentearth makes uploading an excel file of all my monthly payments very easy! I upload it on their site and I’m able to print a confirmation in minutes! When we combine this with transparency and knowing our exact spread, it is a no brainer!
There is a big move toward transparency in FX, but then it can be impossible to actually talk to a real person. With Paymentearth, they analyzed my business, gave me a fixed rate, and I can call them anytime. Frankly, they’re just straight-up, and I appreciate that.
Almost any bank can help get a wire out, if that’s all you need. Paymentearth goes above and beyond for us though, and for a small business like ours, it makes a big difference to get such expert service. Of course, the rates are good too!
It’s not often that we need foreign cash, but it’s very convenient to order what we need from Paymentearth, and have one less thing to worry about before the trip.
My guy at Paymentearth took the time to explain how Forward Contracts work, and how they can help my business. My bank never gave me half the attention of Paymentearth.
In my experience, banks are only willing to bend over backward if you’re a giant company. I’ve never felt that with Paymentearth. These guys are upfront, they’re knowledgeable, and they genuinely seem to value my business. It’s actually a pretty good feeling.
We used to use three FX companies in order to keep the rate reasonable. With Paymentearth, they walked us through how to calculate the exact spread we get on every deal! A big time saver and a great way to do business!
